The Future is Now

Wednesday 21st October / presented by Kylie Sturgess Caitlin Nienaber Paul Hunt

This afternoon at exactly 4.29 is a momentous occasion.

It is the the time, on the day, in the year that Marty McFly and Doc Brown rocketed their Delorean into the future.

October 21, 2015 is Back to the Future Day, a good chance to reflect on an timeless movie franchise and to look at how the future of the eighties stacks up against today’s present.
